Thanks so much to the people on the poles in the dark, late at night, and in terrible wind, too. I so appreciate their commitment to the people in Lincoln — and I really appreciate my electricity tonight.

Thank you for restoring power to our home and neighborhood last evening! We are very grateful for your quick response and the professionalism of your representatives in resolving the problem. When power is automatically at your disposal, we take it for granted. But when without, it definitely sheds a “light” on how blessed we really are.

A streetlight was installed almost at the end of my driveway and I love it. It lights up my front driveway, garage and house doors, car and all. I really sleep well now feeling secure from this light. I don’t know who was in charge to get this project done, but they did a great job. God bless.
